Apple Galette

Serves 2-3 


1 (9-inch) pie crust, homemade or store-bought, thawed

1 apple, peeled, halved and cut into chunks or sliced

1 tsp. brown sugar

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1 egg

1 tbsp. water

1/2 tsp. granulated or coarse sugar


Whipped cream, if desired

Vanilla ice cream, if desired



Heat oven to 400°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.


Peel, halve and cut apple, and toss slices with brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Set aside.


Unfold pie crust and roll slightly on a floured board with a lightly floured rolling pin. Add apple slices to the middle of the pie crust, and gently fold the sides of the pie crust inward.


Whisk egg and water, and lightly brush over the crust. Sprinkle crust with sugar.


Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and apples are tender. Cool 5 minutes. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
